Since the discovery of Viagra provided an answer to erectile dysfunction for men, society has sought to find a pharmaceutical solution to cure the waning female libido. The truth is that pharmaceuticals can often help, but they are not the complete answer. Participants will learn about the rest of the desire story, including ways to rejuvenate that spark that adds to quality of life, and eliminate beliefs and behaviors that are holding you back.
- Saturday, March 14 - Body Image and Female Sexuality
Who says only women with perfect bodies have a great sex life? Media, advertising and popular culture are filled with commentary about weight and body-shaming is universal. All this negative projection can get in the way of our sexual confidence and enjoyment. This presentation deals with attitudes that can hold us back from experiencing great sex and specific challenges the average woman faces. Embracing your sexuality “in the skin you’re in” is a necessary life skill to develop.
- Saturday, April 18 - Understanding Female Sexual Pleasure
Sexual climax is highly desired, yet shrouded in mystery and often misunderstood. It exists at the core of an intimate relationship, yet is often ignored or denied. This may be due to inaccurate education about body physiology, or embarrassment about seeming ignorant on technique. Practical information about all factors that promote living a turned-on life will be presented, and participants will achieve clarity about sexual anatomy, physiology and function surrounding female orgasm.
Ads for herbs and agents to enhance sexual performance abound in media. Find out the truth about lifestyle changes, foods to eat and diagnostic tests to help you function at an optimal level of healthy sexuality.
